Incommun was born fifteen years ago as an architecture studio. Its name, Incommun, wanted to highlight the importance of collaborative work, an essential collaboration in the world of design and construction, where many actors end up working on the same project.

Today this collaboration extends between Spain and France and includes, in addition to architecture projects, interior decoration projects, cultural mediation and illustration. In order to carry out all these works, the artist Aurelio Ayela and the versatile Su Lleó join the team.

Incommun is now an interdisciplinary studio, a singular studio linked to art, letters and architecture, an in-commun studio in the double sense: we work with you, in common, from different fields, something that, until now, was little common.

Thanks to everyone who has made this project possible, especially George, who has been at the bottom of the barrel from the beginning.

Carlota WASHINGTON was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1984.

Born to a Spanish mother and an American father, her passion for  languages soon led her to learn her favorite language: French. Her eagerness for adventure, as well as her incombustible imagination, lead her to devour, from a very young age, 20th century literature in OV, that is, in any of the three languages that she masters with great ease. After her studies in comparative literature at Columbia University, she, Carlota, settles in the north of France, where she has lived and worked for some years now.

This intrepid teacher and essayist joins, through her writing, the Incommunstudio team through the NO-END WORDS blog.

We hope you like it!

A STRANGER ON MARS by Carlota Washington Estaba guapísimo con ese jersey a rayas negras y blancas de cuello barca. Derretía hasta el asfalto a su paso, y eso que era noviembre y hacía un frío de narices. Estaba de lo más apetecible y arrebatador. Lo peor es que yo

“I am Odysseus, the son of Laertes, who is on the lips of all men for all manner of traps, and my fame reaches to heaven. I live in Ithaca, beautiful at sunset. There is in it a mountain, the Nérito with agitated foliage, very outstanding, and around it there are many inhabited islands close to each other, Duliquio and Same, and the one populated by Zante forests. Ithaca leans on the sea with little height, the most remote towards the West, and the others are further away, towards Eos and Helios. She is rough, but a good groomer.”
